What the title says, I think the main problem is the HDD, I have a Black Caviar, great drive but so noisy. Is there anyway I can shut it up? I have seen some foam and stuff I can put it in, but want something that isn't going to make my case or HDD any hotter!
Suppose your right, could say 5 rubber bands around it work? Think I am going to have a hard time getting it into the cage though with stuff around it, but I do need a good idea. I'll have to find a UK website for that but I might give it ago.
well, first off, it should be secured in the cage and into the chassis of the machine - so, essentially it does not move, period. If everything is rattling inside your chassis, then either tighten up the screws, or get a new chassis because it should not rattle
are you talking about a drive that is just free sitting? then, yes, of course some rubber bands stacked in 2 locations will provide some support
